I too am having this problem. I built this machine at work, where I

Both Evolution and Firefox are painfully slow, and take forever to do
anything. There do seem to be a lot of errors occurring on the
connection. I'm not sure what to make of the second command response.
How can this be fixed?

Hi all,

I am a FC3 user. I have connected a broadband internet CAT5 cable (8

speed was fine, but when I installed FC3, the speed got low dramatically

Sounds like you might have a duplex mismatch - you can use "ifconfig -a"
and look for excessive errors - if you are connecting to a switch you
should see none - if you are using a hub a few errors are OK.

Check the speed on the Fedora end using "dmesg | grep eth0" to see it
it's 10-half, 10-full, 100-half or 100-full duplex - make sure your
switch is the same.

Thanks for the info:
results of grep eth0:

dmesg | grep eth0
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
eth0: forcedeth.c: subsystem: 01043:80a7 bound to 0000:00:05.0

thats it? Obviously something up here but what?

Thanks for the link. I used the settings recommended, turned off ipv6, restarted network, actually restarted the computer, (probably unnecessary as I updated services as I changed them), no luck!
I suspect the Nvidia ethernet driver "forcedeth.c" is the problem. Looking for updates and workarounds. However, it is odd that adding and activating another ethernet card (3COM) doesn't change the symptoms. The ASUS K8N MB hs an on-board ethernet which one cannot remove. Perhaps I need either a new driver or this MB simply doesn't run FC3 (all correctly).
